Hi there <<First Name>>,

There's plenty of great stuff coming up––check it out below.  But, as you know, Mardi Gras Season has begun––so, like the priest that I am... I'm naturally thinking of Lent. :-)

So, here's some important news related to Lent 2020:
1. Tulane Catholic, like the University, will be closed on Lundi Gras & Mardi Gras 2/24 & 2/25.
2. We reopen on Ash Wednesday (2/26) with 3 Masses: 12:00pm, 7:00pm, and 9:00pm.  [Ashes are not allowed to be distributed outside of the Liturgy, except for the sick and homebound]
3. Confessions will be offered in all churches in the Archdiocese on March 18th, 25th, and April 1st from 5-6:30pm.  They will also be available at Tulane Catholic at those times.
4. Because Tulane's Spring Break is over Holy Week this year, we will not celebrate Triduum (Holy Thursday, Good Friday & Easter Vigil) at Tulane Catholic.  There will only be a 10am Palm Sunday Mass and a 10am Easter Sunday Mass.

I'm looking forward to celebrating a fruitful Lent with all of you!  Please invite a friend to join you at Mass during Lent.


-Fr. Thomas Schaefgen, O.P.
